General Manager

Kentaro Sugasawa

Kentaro joined Sugata Research after a 5.5-year career as a system engineer and an 11.5-year career with one of Japan’s largest domestic market research firms. Following his personal motto “ichigo ichie (treasure every encounter for it will never recur),” he values every encounter, whether in business or personal contexts.

Although a dedicated rugby player since childhood, since entering his thirties Kentaro now spends more time watching the sport than playing it. He also enjoys reading, playing baseball and spending time with family.
